Welcome to Open Thread Fridays, where we ask you to tell us about properties, structures, apartments and more in San Francisco. Have you discussed something? Let us know.
Last month we asked you to name the ugliest building in San Francisco. From the Intercontinental Hotel to the “windowless AT&T bunker” in 611 Folsom, everything was on the list, but most of you agreed that “Darth Vader” was the clear winner. (Many of you were divided when it came to Morphosis Architects’ federal building, which we will now officially consider a genius, polarizing gem.) Now let’s hear your softer side.
Tell us which building in the city makes you shiver the most? Which one do you look to see during your morning commute? Which building is your favorite and why?
There are many to choose from. Is it the Hobart building?
What about the Pacific Union Club?
The Legion of Honor is pretty cute.
And don’t forget your Curbed SF Editor’s personal favorite, 675 California. There’s also the Frank Lloyd Wright at 140 Maiden Lane, the Heineman Building, the 2500 Steiner and much more.
And these are just a handful of the better known; We’re sure you can find some underrated gems in San Francisco.
The rules: It doesn’t matter what the building is, as long as it’s in San Francisco, it’s a building. (But that means monuments – like the Golden Gate Bridge or Cupid’s Span – are outside.) And please show off your work and add a photo of your favorite building in the comments.
